Abstract

This Special Issue of Eurasia Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education presents the current research trend of Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in Malaysia. As many may argue, a quality STEM education should be able to provide wider opportunities for students to develop their competencies in not only Science, but also Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and its related areas. A successful STEM education equips students with STEM core competencies in sequences that are built upon one another and can be applied within the context of real world application. The acquisition of STEM core competencies will gradually nourish them to be critical and creative thinkers, uplift their scientific literacy, and more importantly stimulate themselves to be creative innovators. These are among the main reasons why STEM education has been an area of great interest in Malaysia just like in any other countries in this world
